On 18 May, IMCO Members exchanged views with Commissioner Thierry Breton on the EU coronavirus exit strategy. The discussion focused on the Joint European Roadmap towards lifting Covid-19 containment measures, presented by the President of the Commission on 15 April 2020. The Commission was invited to present its views on the gradual lifting of lockdown measures in a controlled way, on the proactive monitoring by the Commission of the compliance with EU law of national restrictions,

on free standards and market conformity assessment procedures for PPE and medical devices, as well as on tracing apps. The exchange of views also allowed Members to ask questions on infringement procedures against Member States, adopting measures against single market rules, on the implementation of the Recovery Roadmap as well as on the MFF.
